>> Hi I'm Will Greenwald, associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Canon power shot A460 digital camera. This is a basic five mega pixel, budget camera, it's not too small, not to high-tech and most importantly it's not too expensive. Now at five mega pixels this does sort of lag behind even most budget cameras, which will be around six mega pixels but it does have a few advantages which many budget compact cameras won't have. The lens is actually a four X zoom, rather than the standard three X so he will be getting a little bit more zoom power and while the LCD screen is only 2 inches, it does leave enough room for a little optical viewfinder. Now you won't get a lot of control out of this camera because it's basically a pure point and shoot, it has some scene modes, you can change settings like iso-sensitivity but you won't be doing any manual focusing, aperture, shutter priority, any of those fancy features, it's pretty much just turn on, point and shoot, but for the price it could be a decent digital camera. I'm Will Greenwald and this is the Canon power shot A460. ^M00:01:12 [ Music ]
The Canon PowerShot A550 is a low-cost camera with 4x optical zoom and a low-end set of features.
The PowerShot A580 features nearly identical hardware as the A590, but with a slimmed-down feature set. It keeps the same 8-megapixel resolution and 4x optical zoom lens as the A590 IS, but forgoes the optical stabilization system and accessory lens compatibility. Worse yet for skilled users, it lacks the A590 IS' manual exposure controls.
This 4-megapixel Canon PowerShot S410 pocket camera offers few manual controls or special features but delivers solid image quality and performance.
A very good compact camera, the 10-megapixel Canon PowerShot SD900 nonetheless falls short of its faster, more full-featured, albeit lower-resolution competitors.

The Canon PowerShot A2000 IS is lean on features beyond its stabilized 6x zoom lens, but it takes great photos and is easy to use.
The Canon PowerShot G7 is a solid enthusiast camera for those who've ruled out a budget dSLR.

The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS is a point-and-shoot camera with a 35x zoom lens. As long as you're not expecting much more than that, it's a very good megazoom.
Canon PowerShot A460 Review
The good: 4x zoom lens; optical viewfinder.
The bad: Very noisy images; awkward zoom rocker; no 30fps VGA movie mode.
The bottom line: With heavy image noise and merely decent performance, there are better budget cameras available than the Canon PowerShot A460.
